January 12th, 2016, Sao Paulo, Brazil, TechXact Group announced that it has plans to invest $5.4 billion over three years in Brazil for building data centers in three Brazilian cities.
TechXact executives visiting with government authorities said during a phone interview with Alberto Alerigi of Reuters, “Brazil's neutral status in the international community is a strong selling point for the project, Carlos Tavares, TechXact's Vice President of strategic alliances said. None of TechXact's thousands of clients would object to storing their data in Brazil.”
The foreign investment branch of Sao Paulo State's Government said in a press release it planned to sign a memorandum of understanding with TechXact confirming two of the centers would be based in the cities of Campinas and Sorocaba. The third data center will likely be in Recife, in the northeastern state of Pernambuco, the statement said.
TechXact plans to fund the project with its own capital as well as investments from sovereign wealth funds and development banks. In this visit TechXact delegation was received and met with governors, mayors, members of cabinet, the US Consulate, as well as technical universities and multi-national development/investment firms.
